OMD: Delicate! Leopard Lacquer ”King Crab”

OMD: DELICATE! Well, my English is quite poor but I just realized that the word ”delicate” can mean different things. Obviously the first thing I thought about was something delicious and yummy and juicy… like strawberries!! This polish it Leopard Lacquer ”King Crab”. Isn’t it delicious!!? It’s a vibrant deep red jelly filled with small black hexagons, bigger red hexagons and huge red squares. I LOVE the red squares!! And the black glitter really makes the polish look like yummy, jelly, juicy, ripe, mellow strawberries! This is tree coats, no undies. I love this look!

OMD: Floral! Leopard Lacquer Starfish

mimosa's before mani's

This is China Glaze ”Mimosa’s Before Mani’s” from the spring 2013 collection Avant Garden. It’s an orangy peach with gold shimmer. Lovely spring/summer color.

OMD Day 14: Flowers! Another accent nail to represent today’s theme in the OMD challange! I don’t do much flower design nails nowadays, but when I do it’s always roses. I like doing roses and the variety of looks coming with them. They can look quite real, or vintage, or doodle like this.

And today I give you Leopard Lacquer ”Starfish”, which is a soft pink tinted base filled with silver shimmer, orange hexagons and silver stars! I put two coats of Starfish on top of Mimosa’s Before Mani’s.

On top of Fifth Avenue I put two coats of Leopard Lacquer ”Raspberry Ice”. It’s a slightly pink tinted base filled with silver shimmer, rose glitter and big flakes. Isn’t it gorgeous!? I love the luxurious look with the big flakies in it!

OMD Day 13: STARS! Finally I get to use my cute metal star studs! They’ve been lying around forever and they fit great for this gorgeous look!

Day 2: BLUE! With tape explosion

Day 2 of OMD Rather Awesome Nail Art Challange and todays theme is BLUE. This is the very very blue Kubiss no. 83. Love the intensity in it. Added silver explosions using tape to define the area which i painted with silver. I used Revlon ”Silver Dollar”.

Some of you probably noticed I’m a bit lazy writing only in English, smaller pics, not flawless photos. Well, I’m still on vacation with a crappy computer and very slow Internet. But I’m trying to make it look as good as possible!

This is a super sweet pink I got from my mom a couple a days ago. Isa Dora ”Brilliant Lily” has a strong pearly finish, and in some angles it looks almost like mirrors, reflecting almost everything. Very interresting!

Added some vacation nail art to it 🙂

This is what I bought at Ullared the day before yesterday! When I saw they had China Glaze this year I was so excited I would probably have jumped around if it wasn’t so crowded in there.

China Glaze from left: Liquid Leather, Evening Seduction, Fifth Avenue, Mimosa’s before Manis, Innocence, Dandy Lyin’ Around.

Kubiss from left: Ridge Filler, no. 81, no. 82, no. 83 and Denim Effect

Below pic there’s some other stuff I brought with me from the store. A lot of dip-in removers, body butter, glass files, buffers, liquid eyeliner and some other crap that didn’t fit into the image 😀 Happy!

And this Wednesday it’s time again for Ullared. We always go there two times in the summer, just because it’s FUN!

Nude Angry Birds with Julep Glitter, and a Chanel combo!

 

angry birds lumene 

Som ni ser har jag kortisar på vänsterhanden! Och runda sådana. Jag tycker ju bättre om den mandelformade nageln än den kantiga. Men det var lite för korta för mandelform på denna hand, så de fick bli runda. Jag kan inte minnas när jag hade runda naglar sist! Det måste ha varit flera år sedan! Men så söta de är! Jag testade det ljusaste nagellacket Angry Birds nr. 50 från Lumene. Jag blev väldigt positivt överraskad för jag har letat efter ett bra nudelack länge. Det är nästan genomskinligt ljusrosa och ger en fin ton till nageln. Perfekt som basen för en fransk manikyr. Jag valde att prova det glittriga Vivien från Julep på nageltipparna. Det är supersmått silverglitter och större guldhexagoner. Väldigt sött! 

EnglishAs you can see, I have shorties on my left hand. And round ones! I like almond-shaped nails better than square. But these were a little too short for the almond shape, so they had to be round insted. But they’re going for the almond!! I can not remember last time I had round nails! That must have been years ago! But how cute they are! I tried  Angry Birds no. 50 from Lumene. I was  pleasantly surprised because I have been looking for a good sheer nude for a long time. This is a nearly transparent light pink and gives a nice tint to the nail. Perfect as a base for a french manicure. I added the sparkly Vivien from Julep on the tips. It’s micro silver glitter and larger gold hexagons. Very cute!

 

julep vivenchanel distraction

 

Sen gjorde jag en Chanel combo. Jag hade fortfarande kvar Distraction på högerhanden och bestämde mig för att använda mitt andra Chanel, Peridót. Jag använde striping tape för att göra det v-formade mönstrat på naglarna. Sen la jag till en palm på ringfingret… fast det ångrar jag, tror jag. Den blev lite klumpig, palmen. 

English: Then I did a Chanel combo. I still had Distraction on the right hand and decided to use my other Chanel, Peridót. I used striping tape to make the V-shaped pattern on the nails. Then I added a palm tree on the ring finger … though I regret, I think. The palm was a little awkward.
